i think if its not a budgetary issue, i would go for it and get a new, flirty, courthouse-friendly dress!  nothing like celebrating an amazing weight loss with a dress to make you feel fantastic!  congrats and good luck!

oh, and i dont know what kind of dress you’re looking for, but davids bridal has some super cute little knee-lenth white dresses with boleros – might be something similar to what you’re looking for there

Just get a new dress if you want one.  Congratulations on your weight loss!  I totally understand you wanting to show it off! 

But if you decide you still want your current dress, it is probably alterable.  I had my dress taken in from a bridal 8 to a street 0–it was like a tent on me because it literally wouldn’t stay up at all, and they were still able to make it fit like a glove.  The sample was big to begin with, but then I lost 15 pounds right before the wedding.  Surprisingly it wasn’t excessively expensive or anything– I think $170 total for fairly rushed alterations.

I agree with the other ladies!  If it’s in your budget, do it!  There are a lot of affordable dresses out there, particularly shorter ones.  Get a cute faux fur bolero for around Christmas would be totally appropriate!

Congrats on your weight loss. I think all the things you listed are great reasons to buy a new fabulous dress to wear.
